I was just reading a story that makes me realise how fucking soft society has become. Some train ran into the City Loop today with one set of doors open, and the passengers were "shaken" and described it as terrifying, blablabla. You soft fucks. How the hell would have these people coped some fifty years ago when the idea of doors on trams was foreign and trains routinely ran with open doors?

If I vanish for long periods, assume I needlessly refreshed the page.

I sense a lot of DVDs and FS over the next few days to get me through this slow interwebs.

I could go and be sociable, but given my easiest way of communicating with my friends is via the internet, it's a shit cycle.

It does mention one of the scared passengers was heavily pregnant, so I can understand her being a bit on the worried side (though I can't understand why the fuck nobody had given her a seat), but the rest are just total fucking wimps.

Here's some quotes:

A shaken passenger, who did not want to be named ...

"We were pretty close to the doorway and as you leave North Melbourne the tracks are very wobbly and the train rocks backwards and forwards so we had to pretty much hang on for life," she said.

... a man near the doorway repeatedly pressed the emergency response button but the train did not slow down or stop.

... passengers huddled further into the carriage so cramped commuters could move away from the door after unsuccessful attempts to force it shut.


You wimps.

But at least it's 66.6MB.

Ironically Ax, I was about to make a similar point about planes!

Yahoo!

I never waited for it to load properly :shakesfistatsky: but it's about people panicking during a go-around, a fucking normal procedure.

OMG WE DIDN'T HIT THE GROUND FIRST TIME AROUND WE'RE ALL GONNA DIE

You can be up to 10, 11 kilometres up.

But my point stands, when was the last time a plane crashed whilst on a go-around, versus how many planes have crashed that should have gone around?

OMG THERE WAS ENGINE POWER WHEN WE WERE CLOSE TO THE GROUND!!!111

OK, so it outdoes dialup, but not by all too much in uploads. I can download at speeds up to 55KB/sec or so, but my uploads are limited to 12-13KB/sec.

Says it's got half an hour to go - so soon enough at least! I take it you at least got the two songs I sent as e-mail attachments earlier?
